A flash of lightning got rid of the dark
Long enough for the sickly man to see
More aloe vera would be needed to
Soothe the wounds of his beautiful house.
Grass and tree tops are pointed to the door,
The cold wind batters the fragile window,
And the man knows it will not take long before
The rumble of thunder will break the sky
And clouds will release their cargo of rain
On the red bricks, roof and rest of the house.
Though the man shakes his fist up to the sky,
He cowers in fear
for this Putin storm.
